Fido on the Roof
Looked across the street this morning,
There was a doggy on the roof.
The surprise came without warning
When I was startled by a woof.
Upon the neighbor’s garage top,
High up in winter’s frozen air,
Dog was examining the drop.
Knew he shouldn’t be up there.
Now, how did it get up there?
I don’t think anybody knows.
I’ve seen it there before, I swear,
I seems to happen when it snows
Though it really is amazing,
He could be caught up there all day.
Judging noises he is raising,
It’s quite a scary place to stay
It surpasses understanding
That his down exit could be rough.
It could be a nasty landing,
If he decided to hop off.
So if you spot that doggy, don’t give me any guff.
Run and get a ladder, he’s been up there long enough!
